Up & At 'Em!

5:06AM here. What the hell am I doing up writing poems?!

***

Contemplating heading downstairs and running on the treadmill. Would it make too much sound? Currently realizing how hamster-like such a move would be.

I'm annoyed that my iPod can't sync to two computers. I mean, I basically have the same exact music library between my laptop and my desktop. Why does it keep resetting the iPod?!

*whine*

It's true, I'm hardly ever serious on my blog. I'm having far too much fun. And anyway, I really am a goofball in real life, though not so much in the classroom. All my poems house my pent-up seriousness, I suppose. I mean, I've always been serious in my poems. Humor is such a hard thing to do in poetry. I think I've written one funny poem in my lifetime.

Have you ever written a funny poem?

I've been admiring my neighbor's planter boxes. I need to borrow my other neighbor's Bobcat. Now that the weather's warming up, I'd like to have a mini-garden, or perhaps a few rows of planter boxes. I know my mother would like that. She had a pretty fierce garden at our old place in Ontario.

Current Spin:



Grandaddy. "Summer Here Kids."

I wish. Puffy coats and bearded drummers, still. . .

Do limericks count as funny poems?

The other day I was up at 4:06 . . . I wish I weren't, since I'm already seriously "sleep-deprived," but that's been pretty much the way it is for me for years!

She went on a date and thought it was great so now she gets crates full of __________.

i find funny poems difficult. i've written one, but i think its so "geeky", that very few people would laugh....

w/ all this advanced technology apple has you would swear they would make it possible to put music on/off computers simple. syncing is a consistent disaster for ipods

Yeah, that's a pain about the iPod. You can't synch to separate computers...only one at a time.

Barb said...

Um...I thought the question here was have the readers ever written funny poems. :P
